Strange Arctic Circle Flag Discovered

A joint British/Canadian team of underwater researchers, using a sophisticated sonar scan and an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), announced sonar images revealed the outline of a well-preserved ship approximately 20 feet in length resting upright only some 45 feet below the surface of Netilling Lake on Baffin Island. The discovery may well become one of the most puzzling mysteries in recent maritime history because of its unusual location at 660 34'N 730 25'W. The few details presently known including some skeletal remains discovered near the shipwreck, plus stories from the local Inuit of a ghostlike ship seen in nearby waters, threaten to tell a grisly tale in what may or may not become one of the most significant scientific riddles in the Arcticís retreating murky waters.

While the research team has yet to recover any actual artifacts from the wreck, many have already hailed the find as a major breakthrough in Arctic Circle history. Using the AUVís onboard high definition video camera, the team was able to get a close up look at the ship as it sat on the sea floor, and discovered the strange remains of a burgee gently floating in the currents from a short flag staff on the small shipís stern. Apparently bleached white, close examination of the triangular-shaped flag reviewed it had originally had an unknown emblem stitched on it. This artifact the researchers consider a most significant clue to the shipís identity and its story.
